Croydon University Hospital hosts A&E training course for newly qualified nurses
Newly qualified nurses are brushing up on their emergency medicine skills with a training course which is being held at Croydon University Hospital for the first time.
The eight Croydon nurses and nine from St George’s are mixing theory and practice with five study days over five months.
Topics covered on the foundations of emergency practice course include assessing and treating heart attack patients, looking after critically ill adults and children and recognising and managing mental health issues.
Course facilitator, and accident and emergency matron, Stella Davey said: "If you have just qualified then coming into A&E can be very challenging - it is fast paced and you often see some of the most critically ill and complex patients.
"The course helps prepares nurses and perhaps even more importantly allows them to create support networks with others working in the same team."
